Get yourself a memory card for the Samsung Galaxy S9 they said… You’ll be able to move your thousands of photos on it, they said… And you did that, only to discover that some of the pictures you transferred simply vanished. They are no longer on the internal memory of the device, but they clearly aren’t on the memory card where you just transferred them either. Are they lost for good?
Absolutely not! This is not the case when pictures not visible after moving to memory card on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. It might feel that way, but most likely, you’re just dealing with a media scanner error. If you really moved a lot of images, like at least 1000 photos at once, you can expect to this kind of error. The problem is that the media scanner of your Android version has failed to identify and display all the images from that memory card.
So to speak, the pictures are still there, but the scanner missed them and you cannot see some of those images, for the time being! The best thing is that you can take care of it with a simple restart. Do that and wait for the Samsung Galaxy S9 to return to the normal running mode. The media scanner will restart as well and, this time, you should be able to make those pictures visible! After this you should be able to fix pictures not visible after moving to memory on Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.
